Rumour – Internet trail leads to Grand Theft Auto V leading man

Monday, 14 November 2011 05:50 GMT By Brenna Hillier

Internet sleuths believe they’ve identified the actor behind Grand Theft Auto V’s as yet undetailed leading man: one Ned Luke.

Luke, whose most prominent appearance is probably an episode of Law & Order, is listed as playing Albert de Silva in Grand Theft Auto V on his IMDB page; the surname de Silva was noted in multiple Take Two casting calls strongly tipped to have been GTA related.

A demo reel shows off the actor’s resemblance to the unnamed narrator of the first GTA V trailer.

An account believed to belong to the actor was reportedly turned up by iGTA5; before being deleted, it was noted to be following Rockstar games and to have made a tweet about GTA.

A Twitter user claiming to be Luke’s cousin and fellow actor Jimmy Taenaka, have both added their voices to the rumour.
